TITO (Trans Industrial Toy Orchestra) was founded during the winter of 2001 / 2002 as a platform for TI-performances.
The basic idea was to use toys that made noises and which were thrown away by parents when their children become older.
But TI artists never get older, definitely they like all these childish games. Very soon they had a wonderful and big collection of strange & noisy toys, and after two rehearsals in Amsterdam and Hamburg they had in January 2003 their first public performance in ZAAL100 in Amsterdam. Since then TITO performed in cities like Hamburg, Amsterdam, Bremen, Tokyo but also in villages and landscapes like Veenhuizen and Visbek. From some of these performances and studio recordings are also CD's and a vinyl LP available.
Important part of TITO is also the collaboration with guest artists:
TITO performed with DJ Sasaki Takashi and VJ TOOWA II and visual artist Shojo no Tomo, and made recordings by using sound material of RLW (Ralf Wehowsky) and Kommissar Hjuler und Frau.
The pieces which TITO play are some historic FLUXUS pieces or written by the members of TITO.
In 2009 TITO was dissolved.
